On Monday, October 10, Adam Graves visited the Rusk Institute at NYU Medical Center on behalf of the New York Rangers and Garden of Dreams Foundation.
The two-time Stanley Cup champion stopped by the hospital to talk to numerous children and families, while doing his best to provide a distraction to each of the patients on hand.

Jason Mayo, a Rangers season ticket holder from Bellmore, joined Graves during the visit to read his children’s book to a group of younger patients at the hospital. The book, titled “Do Witches Make Fishes”, was written by Mayo after being inspired by Graves’ generosity and kindness.
In 2009, Graves helped Mayo cheer up one of his close friends who was battling cancer. Both Mayo and Graves took turns reading to the kids, who listened attentively and were even complimented by Graves afterwards for their behavior.
In addition to reading to the kids with Mayo, Graves signed autographs, posed for pictures and handed out goodies from the Rangers Gift Chest including blankets, hats, playing cards and much more.
